This novel lacked a credible plot-line. When we learn why the "perfect" Allison has been sent to prison, it doesn't hit the reader as realistic. The story was relatively predictable. I did, however, quite enjoy the characters (the story is told through 4 perspectives: Allison, Claire, Brynn and Charm). Heather Gudenkauf does a great job of getting Allison's emotions on the page, however, her reactions seem very underdone. Given the "Crime" she has committed and the secrets she has, I would have expected more depth; more raw pain.
This novel is the story of Allison Glenn, the perfect teenager, who is sent to jail for a horrific crime. Her parents, and beloved sister Brynn want nothing to do with her. This book begins after Allison's release, as she tries to rebuild a life for herself and attempts to reconnect with Brynn, who has been seriously traumatized by the events that took place on the night of Allison's crime and the secrets between them.
Very easy read. If you are looking for something simple, without complex plot lines, this might be the book for you. I didn't hate it, but I've read better.
